Benedict Institute was founded and is sustained by 

THE AMERICAN BAPTIST HOME MISSION SOCIETY, 

To thoroughly prepare Preachers and Teachers and others for the work 
demanded of them in this State. These demands will, therefore, modify 
and determine the chara< ter of the instruction. 

MRS. B. A. BENEDICT, of Pawtucket, R. I., paid the first pur 
chase, and has Urn a constant and liberal support ir. She has begun the 
work of endowment, and has this year contributed $6,ooo toward the 
new build: She has also refitted Colli) Hall with Lecture Room. 

and Musi< Room, and additional dormitories for the yon e women, and 
provided for a new \\-\\<c about the entire park. 



BENEDICT INSTITUTE. II 



THEOLOGICAL DEPARTMENT. 

REGULAR COURSE. 

In arranging the course of study for this department the present, actual 
needs have been studied. Modifications will be made from year to year, 
as circumstances demand. The full course is intended for Students in the 
Normal and Classical Studies. 

SELECT COURSE. 

From the Regular Course a selection is made, with special reference to 
an increasing number of Pastors who have but a very limited educa- 
tion, or can leave their labors for only four months of each year. To 
attempt to put these classes into the same lines of study, is to disgust the 
one with what to him are childish explanations or to befog the other with 
what is to him wholly unintelligible. A special class for Preachers will 
be formed December ist, to continue four months. Ministers and Licen- 
tiates will be gladly welcomed. 



ACADEMIC DEPARTMENT. 



CLASSICAL COURSE. 

This is arranged with reference to those who desire a more liberal 
education, including the Latin and Creek Languages and Higher Mathe- 
matics. Additions will be made as necessity demands. 

ENGLISH COURSE. 

This course is designed to place the advantages of the Higher English 
within the grasp of such as wish to teach, and, at the same time, to giv« 
them such instructions in methods and practice of teaching as will fully fit 
them for their profession. 



NORMAL COURSE. 

Such students as can fulfil the " requirements for admission," and are 
not able to enter either of the above courses, will be assigned to proper 
classes in this department. 

MUSIC. 

Thorough instruction is given on Pian« and Organ, and also in Vocal 
Music. Both the science and art of Music are taught. Rates, including 
use of instalment, $1.50 per month. 

MODEL SCHOOL. 

By the delay in the completion of the new building this school was not 
begun as intended last year, as we had no room. Such a school will open 



I 2 BE NUM. [ 1N>11 H I E 



in October. Students between the age-> of eight and fourteen will he 
received. Teai hing in this department w ill he largely by obje< ? lessons 
and oral instru< ti 



INDUSTRIAL DEPARTMENT. 



Carpentry, Cabinet-making, Bricklaying, Shoemaking, Telegraphy, 
rype Setting, .ind Printing will be begun next year. During the time the 
students are< ompleting the literarv course it is also intended they shall com- 
plete such a course at some o\ the trades as to he prepared to do fir^t class 
work in that department. To begin type setting the student must have 
passed the Normal Course or its equivalent; to take telegraphy he must 
have passed the second year of the English Course or its equivalent. 

In entering the Industrial Department the general rule will be that the 
student must have been long enough at the Institution to commend him- 
self to the Faculty of the Institution for faithfulness, application and 
ability. 

INDUSTRIAL COURSE FOR WOMKV 

\> health i-> the only basis for usefulness or happiness, and the health 
ol the family depends largely upon the wisdom of the wife and mother, we 
have deemed it best to instruct the young women in Physiology and 
Hygiene, with all that pertains to the proper development of the physical 
life. 

They rci eive thorough drill in the care of a house, in the nursing and 
(are of the si< k. and also in the care of children. They are taught how 
to prepare food lor invalids and infants, and the causes of disease with 
methods of prevention; the use of disinfectants and all the sanitary regula- 
tions necessary to a well ordered home, with whatever pertains to the 
unhealthful as well as the healthful conditions of the body. They are 

_ ' t to do kitchen and dining-room work, not only well but quickly. 

I have abundant opportunity to test their >kill and knowledge. All 
that pertains to the good house-wife is taught them, with principles of 
healthful and tasteful die-making. The departments of Printing and 
Telegraphy will also be open to the young women, and it is to be hoped 
that a large number of them will avail themselves of this opportunity to 
sec 'ire i trade b) \vhi< h they can earn a livelihood. 

LOCATION. 

B ned'u t Institute is located in Columbia, S. C. Thiscity is the capital 
of the State, and i> rea< hed by the South Carolina, Columbia and Green- 
ville, Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta, and Wilmington. Columbia and 
Augusta Railroads. Its central location, its ease of access and its delight- 
ful and healthful situation render it at once attractive and convenient. 



BUILDINGS. 

There are already five buildings. ( )ne of these, the " Mansion," is the 
residence of the Faculty. Colby Hall is a three story building, which is 
to be used exclusively as a dormitory for young women. Those young 
women who board in the Institution will have all the influences of a good 
home, and are under the care and instruction of a lady of experience and 
ability whose entire time is given to their special training. A third build- 
ing will be devoted to such Pastors and their wives as both of them desire 
to devote themselves to study. The Dining Hall includes a kitchen and 
dining-room on the first floor. The second story is divided into two 
communicating rooms, which will be used for a Model School for pupils 
from 9 to i 4 years of age. There is also a Library and Music Room. 



NEW BUILDING. 

The school has outgrown its accommodations. A new three-story brick 
building, 108 feet long by 52 feet wide, has been erected at a cost of about 
$14,000. Dormitories are provided for nearly one hundred additional 
students. A Chapel, with four recitation rooms surrounding it, commu- 
nicating with it by folding doors, provides for four hundred students in 
sight or hearing of the platform, or for seating at public exercises over 
one thousand people. Students in this building will be in special charge 
of a resident Professor and given such supervision as shall tend to the 
cultivation of the best life habits. 



DESIGN. 

It i> far from the purpose of the founders of this school to furnish FREE 
education. This would be to perpetuate a spirit of dependence. It is 
rather the intention so to lessen the cost of education as to brin<? it within 
the reach of every one who really desires it. 



BENEFICIARY AID. 

This aid is not intended to cover the entire expense of the year. The 
student must help himself. The highest regular scholarship only serves to 
meet about two-thirds of the cost. It is expected that the student will 
provide the remainder. Beneficiary aid "will therefore be stopped when the 
student does not pay his one-third at the beginning of eae/i month. Benefi- 
( iaries receiving aid will be expected to work at lea^t one hour per day, 
without other compensation, at such work as may be given them. A 
limited number of young men and women, whose ability and character 
give special promise of usefulness, and who cannot otherwise remain in 
school, may receive aid. To enter this list it will be necessarv that the 
applicants shall support themselves at the school long enough to make 
ample proof of good ability, good disposition and good character. Not 
a dollar will be wasted on the lazy, the vicious or the incompetent. 



14 1.1- \1 Oh 1 l\M I 11 1 I . 



ADMISSION. 

It is very important that the student should he present at the opening of 
the school in October, in order to begin with his (lasses. If any part of 
the a hool year must be lost, it would Ik- letter at the close than at the 
beginning of the year. Candidates for admission mast bring certificates 
of good moral character from the ( hurt h or Pastor of the church which 
thej attend. Applicants must t>c able to re* d in Third Reader, and must 
have an elementary knowledge of Arithmetic and Geography. No dis- 
tinction is made because of denominational belief, nor are Sectarian views 

ight in the Academy. Baptist principles are systematically discussed 
only in the Theological Department. 

RELIGIOUS EXERCISES. 
The regular daily school exercises are opened with Singing, Scripture 
Reading and Prayer. The young men hold a meeting every morning for 
prayer, and the young women meet in their reception-room for the same 
purpose. On^each Wednesday evening a Prayer and Conference Meeting 
is held, and on Sunday evening a Sermon is preached in the Chapel. 
Students connected with the Institute either preach or give religious 
instruction on the Sabbath to more than three thousand people. 

LITERARY SOCIETY. 
The young men and women have each a separate Literary or Debating 
S< i ictv, holding weekly meetings for debate, ex tempore speaking^nd 
essay reading. At the close of each month they hold alternately public 
meetings. 

RHETORICALS. 
Rhetoric al exerc iscs form part of the regular school work. The students 
are trained in special classes in Declamation ard Essay Writing. These 
exercises are held weekly. 

LIBRARY AND READING ROOM. 

The Institute has a Library of 1,300 volumes, to which 'the students 
have free access. In the Reading Room are found files of the leading 
Religious and Secular Journals and some of the Reviews. 

APPARATUS. 

We have a beginning. Contributions, both of Money and Apparatus, 
; solicited to make this department meet the necessities.

EXPENSES. 

PAYMENT INVARIABLY IN ADVANCE. 

Reduced Rates. 



Eor such as are ready to pay for One Session of Four Months in one 
sum. when they enter the school, special reduced rates are offered, as 



BENEDICT INSTITUTE. • 15 



money so paid can be'tised to much better advantage in purchase of sup- 
plies. To have the benefit of these rates the entire amount for four 
months must be paid in cash when the student enters school. These 
rates do not include Books or Music ; they do include Board, Tuition, 
Room Rent, Fuel, Lights and Washing for the men, while the women can 
do their own washing and save that expense. 

Total expenses for four months, for males $35 00 

" " " " " " females 32 00 

This reduces the cost per month, for males, to 8 75 

females, to 8 00 



a a a a it 



OTHER RATES. 

If only paid at the beginning of each month in advance, one dollar per 
month will be added ; any time after the first of the month 10 per cent, 
further will be added. Indifference and irregularity in payment of bills 
will be sufficient reason for dismissal. 

Board can be had at slightly cheaper rates in the city; but the student 
thereby loses all the cultivation of table manners, the benefit of the even- 
ing school of two hours, loses all the religious meetings and influences, 
and is exposed to the terrible dangers of unrestrained and vicious society. 
We cannot, by any means, be responsible for such as board in the city. 
No student will be allowed to enter the classes, or assigned a room, until 
past bills are settled and at least one month's expenses paid in advance. 
No discount for unnecessary or short absences or for holidays. Rooms are 
furnished with bedstead, mattress, looking-glass, table, chairs and stove. 
Students must bring their own bed-quilts, sheets, blankets, pillow-slips and 
towels. All other necessaries can be bought at the office at very low rates. 

Students coming in at the beginning of the year may make arrangements 
to pay by work, wholly or in part, for tuition, room rent, wood, lights 
and washing. No money will be paid for work, but it will be turned to 
defraying the students' school expenses or will stand on the books of the 
Institution to his credit for schooling. 

Habits of economy will be a part of the instruction. Good, wholesome 
food will be provided ; but no one need expect anything like luxury or 
the indulgence allowed at home, or the gratification of peculiar tastes or 
notions. Any one who wastes food at the table, or persists in any habits 
disgusting or injurious to his companions will, after disregard of counsel, 
be sent away. 

As the use of tobacco is not only a filthy practice, but also a wasteful 
one, it cannot be tolerated here ; much less intoxicating drinks, in any 
form or quantity. 

The most wicked waste is waste of time. So games of any kind, except 
out-of-door sports for health, cannot be countenanced. Much of the 
necessary exercise can be obtained by work, which will aid the student in 
paying his bills. No student will be retained who uses either vulgar or 
profane language. Disposition to encroach upon the ftw regulations will 
certainly result in dismissal.
